Refinance to a Shorter Loan Term. Renovate the Inside of Your Home. Wait for Your Home’s Value to Rise. Add Curb Appeal, i.e., a garden, green grass, flowers, etc.
Why Choose Equity Smart Realty Inc?
Equity Smart Realty aren’t just agents. They’re professionals and Mr. Figeroux, broker, is also an attorney with the Law Firm of Figeroux & Associates. We subscribe to its strict code of ethics. This is the Equity Smart Realty, the difference for sellers and home buyers:
An expert guide. Selling a home usually requires dozens of forms, reports, disclosures, and other technical documents. A knowledgeable expert will help you prepare the best deal, and avoid delays or costly mistakes. Also, there’s a lot of jargon involved, so you want to work with a professional who can speak the language.
Objective information and opinions. Equity Smart Realty can provide local information on utilities, zoning, schools, and more. They also have objective information about each property. Equity Smart Realty can use that data to help you determine if the property has what you need.
Property marketing power. Property doesn’t sell due to advertising alone. A large share of real estate sales comes as the result of a practitioner’s contacts with previous clients, friends, and family. When a property is marketed by an Equity Smart Realty, you do not have to allow strangers into your home. Your Equity Smart Realty will generally prescreen and accompany qualified prospects through your property.
Negotiation knowledge. There are many factors up for discussion in a deal. An Equity Smart Realty will look at every angle from your perspective, including crafting a purchase agreement that allows you the flexibility you need to take that next step.
Up-to-date experience. Most people sell only a few homes in a lifetime, usually with quite a few years in between each sale. Even if you’ve done it before, laws and regulations change. Equity Smart Realty handle hundreds of transactions over the course of their career.
Your rock during emotional moments. A home is so much more than four walls and a roof. And for most people, property represents the biggest purchase they’ll ever make. Having a concerned, but objective, third party helps you stay focused on the issues most important to you.
Ethical treatment. Every Equity Smart Realty must adhere to a strict code of ethics, which is based on professionalism and protection of the public. As an Equity Smart Realty’s client, you can expect honest and ethical treatment in all transaction-related matters.
